Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 4 cups of salsa
2 lbs. (about 1 Kilo) tomatoes, ripe but firm
1/4 cup green onion, minced
1/2 cup Vidalia onions, chopped finely
1/2-3/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1-2 hot peppers (to taste), finely minced
4-5 Key limes
1-2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed (optional)
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
Slice tomatoes in half. Remove seeds from about half of the tomatoes. Chop as seen below. I prefer to finely chop the tomatoes, so the tomato chunks are slightly larger than the other diced ingredients. Pour them into a large mixing bowl.
Dice the green onion, Vidalia onion and cilantro. Finely mince the hot peppers. Combine with the tomatoes.
Add pressed garlic cloves to the salsa.
Using a lime juicer, squeeze the juice of two limes into the salsa. Taste before adding the rest of the lime juice. Sprinkle with salt; drizzle with olive oil. Stir well.
Serve with tortilla chips or your favorite meal.
